What's your latest acquisition Part VI ?

Recommended Posts

I went for a wander this afternoon to see my old mate Paul at Waterlooville Model Centre and treated myself to this.

 

DSCN2523

 

Some sad news though.

It looks like he will be shutting up shop soon due to lease issues.

 

He has  a sale on, with 25% off all kits, but I will say that they are thinning out.

Paints, glues etc are still normal price though.

 

Let us hope that they can come to some arrangement.

 

Simon.

A spot of retail therapy.

Research material and masks for the Airfix Beaufort, biding its time in the stash queue. Some transfers for the Matchbox/Revell Walrus I’m working on for the High Wing group build.

Much more exciting is the final piece in my Dutch air force 1940 jigsaw puzzle. Very tempted to pull this and the Valom TV onto the bench very soon.

1/72 Eduard MiG-21MF Royal Class dual combo.

 

Bit of a bargain at £30 from Creative Models' ebay shop. Would have posted it in the bargains section but I bought the last one 😁

I nearly bought that myself, but had overspent and already have one anyway. For thirty quid you have an absolute steal.

Feeling quite pleased, not visited my local in almost 6 weeks, and found even more choice than my last visit.  Think I was quite restrained only left with the 3 items. Hasegawa Corsair and Tigershark and an academy thunderbolt. Was saving the trip till tommorow after my 2nd jab but was passing by and I have finished 5 models this week….can always pop in again tommorow as planned for seconds :)

On Holiday in Devon we popped into Plymouth on Wednesday. I found Antics in the shopping centre.

Not much for me in there but I bought a pot of Tamiya Acrylic 'metallic grey' which I assume is politically correct for gunmetal?

In the pannier market, down from Antics, is a stall selling diecast car models. He has a small selection of Aircraft kits too.

Would that be xf-56? It's as it's called, metallic grey. X-10 is gunmetal. These are the only paints I tend to use for day to day, with a small amount of others for specific NMF or other colours.

It is XF-56. I was in a rush and this was the nearest I saw to what I wanted. It'll still get used though. Thanks.

I managed to acquire a 1/32 Fisher Sea Fury T20. I’m very chuffed as I wanted one for ages, so plans for this already.

Wow! That's a leap from 1/72nd Ben. But as you say, that's a very good price.

Hi John

 

It was a decent bargain and I do occasionally dabble in 1/35 (in fact this is my third T-54/55 in the bigger scale!).

 

Very intimidating kit though with approximately 1 billion parts!

I picked myself up one of these, by accident.  Accident?  Yes, an accident....  I wanted to build F/Sgt Dennis Copping's Kittyhawk, ET574 and got thoroughly confused - that aircraft was a Kittyhawk mk1a, so I'll have to think of something else to do with this kit.  I'm researching Lend-Lease VVS P40B's as an option.

New mouse, old blue tooth one has decided it doesn’t want to connect to my old laptop after several days of successful use and now stubbornly refuses to budge gone for a wired one this time. Will get a nice blue tooth one when I get a new laptop in the distant future

Oh well, Bank holiday Monday.... decided to visit the Waterlooville Model Centre and purchased this little beauty.

 

DSCN2528

 

This now means that I have got an F14 F15 F16 and now an F18.

I am not interested in the F22 or F22.
